I normally only make all things chocolate; but, I'm trying to spread my wings and try other recipes. I have several friends who like lemon, and as this looked quite easy, decided to make this cake. Mine does not look like the picture, but does taste pretty yummy. I gave it 5 stars b/c even though mine looks funny, the taste was there; I accept all blame of its failure *to look good*. I will make this again, if only to make it look as scrumptious as the photo above!
